Intel Corp. on Thursday reported its financial results for the fourth quarter of 2013 and for the full year. Since demand for personal computers was slow throughout the most of 2013, the company’s sales declined 1% compared to the previous year. Fortunately for the chip giant, its datacenter products were in high demand. Moreover, in Q4 the situation with client chips stabilized as well.

"We had a solid fourth quarter with signs of stabilization in the PC segment and financial growth from a year ago. We have built a strong foundation for our business by bringing innovation to the market more quickly across a wide range of computing platforms. For example, at CES, we demonstrated multiple devices that weren’t on our roadmap six months ago," said Brian Krzanich, chief executive officer of Intel.

Fourth Quarter 2013

For the fourth quarter, Intel posted revenue of $13.8 billion, operating income of $3.5 billion, net income of $2.6 billion, and EPS of 51 cents. The company generated approximately $6.2 billion in cash from operations, paid dividends of $1.1 billion, and used $528 million to repurchase 22 million shares of stock.

Intel claims that in the fourth quarter of 2013 the PC market stabilized and even demand for its client chips increased. Thanks to new Bay Trail-T family of Atom-branded system-on-chips for tablets, sales of solutions for ultra-mobile products also got higher. Intel’s data center business posted another year of growth and continued to benefit from the build out of the cloud and, robust product lineup and lack of competition from companies like AMD that used to rival Intel with their high-performance offers.

For the fourth quarter of 2013, Intel reported revenue of $13.8 billion, up 3% quarter over quarter and also 3% from a year ago. Combined PC client group and data center group platform volumes were up 3% when compared to the third quarter.

It's sad to see some average prices increasing and notebook numbers decreasing, while Intel doesn't even report tablet segment. Haswell and Silvermont are really fundamental for Intel health.

Expectation is talking about Q42014, it should be 2013.
